Sausage and Egg Pie

Everyone likes pie for breakfast, right?  Here is one that makes a great start to any day.  I threw this together this morning not knowing what I would come up with.  My husband really enjoyed it.  Although I've used sausage any meat you prefer can be substituted.  I like to make my own crust, but to speed up the cooking time use one package of uncooked store bought biscuits.  Serves 4.
Sausage and Egg Pie   

1 Pkg Jumbo Biscuits
  1/2 Lb Uncooked Pork Sausage
   4 Eggs
   1/2 Cup Picante Salsa
   1 Tsp Salt
   1 Tsp Pepper
   1 Tsp Garlic Powder
   2 Cups Fiesta Blend Shredded Cheese
   1 Diced Jalapeno (optional)

Gently kneed together biscuit dough on flowered surface and roll to 1/2" thickness.  Place dough in a 9" pie dish that has been coated with a non cook spray.  Place in 350 oven and bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.,

Cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink.  Do not crumble sausage, but leave in nice size chunks.  Set aside and remove all but one tablespoon of grease from pan.  Whip eggs, picante sauce and seasonings together.  Pour egg mixture over sausage and return to stove.  Allow egg to set and gently turn inward using spatula scraping sides of pan.  Continue turning eggs until done.  Place egg and sausage in pie crust.  Top with cheese and Jalapeno (if desired).  Return to oven for 10 minutes allowing cheese to melt.
